16th Congressional District Debate

Rockford, IL – The 16th Congressional District stretches from Crystal Lake to Galena and down in DeKalb County. This years race for Congress is a rematch of the 2002 contest. Congressman Don Manzullo is being challenged by Democrat John Kutsch.

Both candidates participated in a studio debate moderated by WNIJs Susan Stephens. A coin toss determined that Kutsch
would go first: the candidates are given one minute for opening statements, and two minutes to answer each question, with alternating 30-second rebuttals.
